Kare Kare Chicken Wings Recipe

Eric Pascual was born and raised in the Bay Area and spent a good amount of his childhood in Hawaii. Growing up in a household with working parents, Pascual began learning to cook. Eventually this responsibility became a curiosity and later, a passion. Pascual loves to share his style of cooking through pop-up dinners he hosts through the Feastly network, a site that connects "feasters" with chefs for unique dinner parties.

"This dish was inspired by my love for chicken wings and a popular Filipino dish called Kare Kare [pronounced kar-eh kar-eh]," says the chef. "The traditional Kare Kare dish is a stew made with slow-cooked oxtail in a peanut sauce. This dish works great as a snack or even a main course."
